Nakamura, Flacco teaming up to help earthquake relief fund

Ravens safety Haruki Nakamura has been vocal in his efforts to raise awareness and funding for earthquake and tsunami relief programs in Japan, and now he'll be working with teammates to help contribute to the Red Cross International Relief Fund.

Nakamura, who is of Japanese descent, is organizing "an afternoon of entertainment, autographs and family fun" from noon to 3 p.m. on April 2 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.

One of the Ravens players joining Nakamura will be quarterback Joe Flacco, who will be on hand to autograph two items for a $50 donation and five items for $100.

All the proceeds from the autograph sessions and day-long raffles will be donated to the Red Cross International Relief Fund. The fund is providing emergency relief for Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims.
